September Sew-A-Long Sneak Peek

Hello friends, as summer nears an end I'm looking forward to some Autumn weather, bon-fires, jackets and light rains. I can't wait for leaves to begin to change, baked bread and homemade apple butter as well as soups and chili. MMM I love potato soup! I'm also beyond excited for our first sew-a-long, I hope everyone is as excited about it as I am.
The patterns range in levels of difficulty, starting with the easiest first. We'll start with the Coffee date dress, I know you may be thinking, "Um seriously a dress is the easiest?" This dress is! below is listed the material and notions you'll need, where to find and print the pattern and of course the start date. I currently have three patterns picked out, the fourth is going to be picked by voting. Currently there is only one that costs anything, the Batiste Sports Coat, but the nice thing about buying this pattern is you have full access to the pattern for life, you can print it out as much as you want, use the different sizes and never have to buy a blazer again! Totally worth it in my book, especially since it's hard for me to find a blazer that fits me perfectly!

Each day we'll take a few steps at a time and by the end of the week you'll have a lovely garment to claim as your own creation. as well as skills you'll develop on the way, such as stitching a zipper, creating ruffles, doing an invisible hem, stitching lining into a garment, and pockets So how about we get to the best of details, what we'll be making!
